It takes a lot to manage a farmers market! And we are grateful to those people who do. Many of the folks working in farmers markets are the farmers themselves. We encourage you to get to know your local farmers, and get to know the farmers market managers, too. They’re the ones who are going to be in-the-know!
Of course, subscribing to an available farmers market newsletter will help keep you abreast of market news, too.
We have found Atlanta Magazine to be an excellent source for a listing of Atlanta farmers markets , many of which are open year-round, and their respective pertinent information, including dates/seasons open, location, hours, and some even offer a list of what’s in season!
And it goes without saying, exploring some of Atlanta’s sizable markets is pretty good exercise, too!
If you’re not frequenting your local farmers market, consider this. When Freedom Farmers Market at The Carter Center opened last year as the area’s newest farmers market, they enjoyed 3,000 visitors on their very first day! So, that’s to say that your friends and neighbors are out enjoying Atlanta’s amazing farmers markets…why shouldn’t you?
